Women's Soccer, Meiburger Record First Win Of 2014
Aug. 22, 2014
FAIRFAX, Va. - Loyola University Maryland head women's soccer coach Naomi Meiburger recorded her first head coaching win, leading the Greyhounds to a 2-0 shutout victory over the George Mason Patriots Friday night.
"It's good to get out of the gates with a win against a team that is going to go on and do well in the Atlantic 10," Meiburger said. "Tonight's win was special. It was great to coach against a mentor and friend that provided me with so many opportunities."
Loyola got its first score in the 33rd minute when senior Jessica Van Dyke created a finishing opportunity that was blocked by Patriots goalkeeper Briana Kottler. Junior Rosy Hayes took advantage of the rebound and found an open goal before the defender could stop the ball. Hayes' unassisted goal put Loyola up, 1-0, an advantage the Greyhounds took into halftime.
The Greyhounds added an insurance goal in the 82nd minute when Hayes and sophomore Charlotte Miller setup a pass to Van Dyke 18 yards out. The senior forward finished the play and recorded her first goal of the season.
"Defensively, Nicole Wahlig did a great job winning the aerial balls," Meiburger said. "I'm impressed how Kelsey Targarona stepped in at center back and help control the Patriot's offense. In goal, Colleen Folan made key stops and held the defense together."
Folan recorded her first career shutout, tabbing three saves on 12 George Mason shots.
Loyola will remain on the road, heading to Catonsville, Maryland, to face UMBC in a 7 p.m., matchup on Monday, August 25.
